Hosted by

Revelations of child-abuse and cover-ups by Roman Catholic clergy are causing outrage in the Netherlands, in Austria and in Germany, where Pope Benedict XVI was Archbishop Joseph Ratzinger.

It will be addressed to the faithful in Ireland.  Edward Lucas is International Editor for The Economist.
